Here is the back story. One day I came home from work and discovered that I hated the wall (random, i know) in between our kitchen and dining room. Like, really, really hated it. So, after an AHA, OMG THAT WOULD BE BEST! IDEA! EVER! moment, I gently proposed to my husband that we look into taking it down.
And over the weekend, my extremely handy and handsome husband (Love you, kiss kiss!) made it happen! (I know, right? He’s amazing) And I’m truly super duper excited about the final product. Hooray!
So… drumroll please… here are the before/after photos.
Amazing! No? I cannot describe how much I love the new and more open space. But I think that I would be flat out lying if I didn’t admit that it was hard work. But I am SO proud of my hubs for taking this on. One of my favorite things about him is that he is never afraid of a challenge. He loves learning and already knows how to do so much around the house. Not to mention that he looks super hot while he's home-improving ;)
Here are a few action shots I snapped during 'the demolition'.
While we love the pride and self-satisfaction that our project elicited, I think hubs will be happy to take a little break from saw swinging and wall removing for a little while.
Even Charlie was exhausted from the project... "But Mommmm, are we done yet?"
Oh and while out shopping one day, I randomly found this adorable white shelf (on clearance!)to hang on the new wall. I love, love, love it!
*** I do want to give a big THANK YOU to my wonderful mama and stepdad-in-law who came down and helped us with this! We couldn't have done it without you :) ***
Happy Friday, everyone! The only thing on our agenda this weekend is relaxing. I can't wait! I think it's well deserved ;)
